A People Set Apart : Scotch-Irish in Eastern Ohio.

John Glenn's New Concord - Lorle Porter P. . The history of the Village of New Concord, founded in 1828, can be explained in a single sentence: New Concord was a l Road town. These two elements make it unique. The Scotch-Irish were Scots who were planted in Northern Ireland after 1600 to supplant the native Irish and Protestantize the rebellious Catholic country. No longer Scots, certainly not Irish, they became Scotch-Irish.

In the late 1700s, the Ohio Country beckoned to thousands of immigrants who longed for a piece of land and the right to live by their beliefs. The trail of their migration into this promised land is the basis for the complete story of the Scotch-Irish and their contributions to Eastern Ohio. The forging of Zane's Trace, the settlement of towns such as New Concord, Norwich, Otsego, Zanesfield, Cambridge, and Lancaster - to name a few, the building of the National Road, and the importance of the railroads play large parts in this story. Early settlers and the stamp they made on these areas are followed closely throughout the story, with special attention to pre- and post-war information. An additional historic side-trip involves the Underground Railroad stations in Eastern Ohio, as well as the people who participated in this endeavor. The author provides an excellent history of the Presbyterian Colleges in the area and their roles throughout the decades.An unusually large number of Scotch-Irish men enlisted and fought in the Civil War. The 15th, 26th, 78th, 97th, 122nd, and 126th Ohio Volunteer Infantries were recruited largely from the Eastern Ohio enclaves of these people.For these staunch Presbyterian Scotch-Irish soldiers, the Civil War was a war against Slavery and they set out to right the wrong, plunging into the bloodiest war in history.Follow these deeply-committed men through the battles at Stones River, Chickamauga, Chattanooga, Atlanta, Franklin, Nashville, The Wilderness, Cold Harbor, and Petersburg, seeing The War through their eyes. Poignant, and sometimes angry letters to loved ones, as well as diaries and journals kept as they sojourned far from home, will leave no doubt about their commitment to their cause.

Just an incredible history of this area of Ohio.

Iwas surprised by the book's size, but plunged in and found myself in the midst of my own ancestry. A fascinating account of the growth,of modern civilization from out of a wilderness.

In the past hundred years or so the academic study of history has become progressively more detached from the rich world of local history and genealogy. Academic historians have increasingly occupied a rarefied and isolated world, composing boring monographs that make no attempt to engage a larger audience. To compound matters, academics are generally unwilling to avail themselves of the valuable work being done by legions of local historians and genealogists across the country. This delightful work by Dr. Lorle Porter, an emeritus professor at Muskingum College, is a welcome and fascinating exception. Dr. Porter has bridged the gap, and established an impressive scholarly standard.

This meticulously documented study of the Presbyterian Scotch-Irish in east central Ohio is an important and valuable resource for scholars and graduate students who are interested in the convergence of religious and ethnic currents in the Old Northwest during the middle and late antebellum years. By exploring the response of these communities to rising sectional tensions and their enthusiastic response to the Union's call to arms, Dr. Porter connects them directly to the northern "nation-building" project in a direct and exciting way.

This is an epic book of great importance to anyone interested in the influence of the Scotch-Irish in the formation of our Nation. There are those who have said that "there would not have been a Revolution if it were not for the Scotch-Irish". Their hatred of the English, their dedication to the dissolation of slavery, their clan-loyalty and family pride, and their insistence on adherence to the principles of the Presbyterian faith -- these make the Scotch-Irish a force also as the later history unfolds. The sub-title adds "From the Forks of the Yough to the Killing Fields of Georgia", and this book takes the reader from the first settlements in Ohio through the Civil War in a most scholarly fashion.
